Ibrahim Sambo Poems
Wings Of Love
On colognes of mizzling heavens I swing to the rainbow sky I bliss in the ecstasy of the birds The world here is scenic, peaceful and pure
Hollow Palm Leaves
Like palm leaves Without the breeze The stillness of the heart Without its beats
For The Motherland
Tears Ooze from the rocks of my eyes Dropping Throbbing
Magic Is mystical Pleasing bewilderment Marvel
Voice Of Strings
Real love Speaks with voice of strings It kills the heart Softly, with facile strokes
Still In Your Cradle
Whip me with your love Oh mother Engrave more of you In my mind
Time flies On wings of winds Burning in flames Trembling in the wind
Letter to zinet
On the damask Of the eastern star You blossom The twilight
Rainbow of waves
Rainbow Of waves Soft in its touch Caresses the lanky palms
Quick Ever Vanishing Are the rays
A rocky tin town Buried in the sky Sprinkled between valleys And mountain's feet
Sleeping humps Of flakes of gold fluttering To the tease
My Slender Rose
Snow Drizzles From her mouth And it kills with pride
Within- The darkness Of my weariness I found a star of happiness
Song Of Love
Like the moon when lighted
Colossal-is the account of your pillage
On my love, you remain the leverage
And the dove
That sings in my heart the song of love.
